We have seen many spy photos of the updated “Artena”, and now VW has not only confirmed significant changes, but also called the full-fledged premiere. On the results of the restyling of the Volkswagen Arteon will be announced on June 24, and it is possible that on this day, the company will present four machines.
The first teaser, of course, exaggerates both the proportion and overall impression of future innovations. However, even on the design sketches shows clearly that the model will get a new optics in the style of the VW Golf, led strip across the radiator grille and some other cosmetic changes.
The main innovation lies elsewhere: in fact, the first teaser was the first official confirmation of intent to release VW universal Arteon (true, VW would prefer to call the new body “shuting-break”). Obviously, the European market Arteon Shooting Brake will be a kind of more stylish and elegant alternative to the conventional Passat in the “universal” body and more practical version of the liftback.
In addition to the improved appearance and new body, Arteon VW needs to get a new electronic “chips” – in particular, more productive multimedia system MIB3 and complex electronic assistants brings together the autopilot the second level. To work he will be able at speeds up to 210 km/h. Promised also modified as part of the environmental gamma motor which may include a full hybrid setup.
But the fate of the “charged” Arteon with the letter R has not yet officially announced. Perhaps they will be shown together with the standard liftback and “shuting-break”, but with the same probability, VW may postpone the premiere of closer to the end of the year to bring in new products more attention. According to rumors, these “Arteon” will be equipped with two-liter turbo engine from VW Golf R, which develops about 330 HP – but according to another version, the “charged” models can get the latest 400-horsepower engine with 3.0 liter VR6 configuration.
